Mirror, mirror, on the the wall
Show me the future of us all

This is one of the hundreds of sketches I did during my last semester at college. I will be slowly posting the ones I like (and the rest in batches) through out the next few months :)

For all those complaining that this idea has been done before, yes, I know. This type of drawing actually has a genre called Memento Mori. It means things that reminds us of our mortality/death.

Other works:

Drawn on paper with pencil, color added in Photoshop

The only certainty of life is that it is finite.

Beautiful piece, by the way.

Good sketch this one. Every time we look in the mirror, we are older than the last time we looked...........if we stop looking, will it make a difference?

I really love this drawing. I am wondering if you have your art - specifically this drawing - available for purchase as a print somewhere (I couldn't find it here). I need something 18 to 20"W. for a narrow wall in my powder room, and this would fit beautifully with my decor. Very nice work.
